Translation of Selected Verses of the Holy Qur'an on


The Light of the Heavens and The Earth

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The similitude of His light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass. The glass is as it were a shining star. (This lamp is) kindled from a blessed tree, an olive neither of East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself) though no fire touched it. Light upon light. Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah speaketh to mankind in allegories, for Allah is Knower of all things. (24 : 35)


The Creator, The Originator

The Originator of the heavens and the earth! When He decreeth a thing, he saith unto it only: Be! and it is. (2 : 117)

O mankind! Be careful of your duty to your Lord who created you from a single soul and from it created its mate and from them twain hath spread abroad a multitude of men and women. Be careful of your duty toward Allah in Whom ye claim (your rights) of one another, and toward the wombs (that bore you). Lo! Allah hath been a Watcher over you.
(4 : 1)

The Originator of the heavens and the earth! How can he have a child, when there is for Him no consort, when He created all things and is Aware of all things? (6 : 102)

Say: is there of your partners (whom ye ascribe unto Allah) one that produceth Creation and then reproduceth it? Say: Allah produceth Creation, then reproduceth it. How, then, are ye misled! (10 : 34)

He hath created the heavens and the earth with truth. He maketh night to succeed day, and He maketh day to succeed night and He constraineth the sun and the moon to give service, each running for an appointed term. Is not He, the Mighty, the Forgiver? (39 : 5)
